This horseradish sauce recipe is a perfect fit for a gorgeous steak.
You would be surprised how delicious it is! It is a good example of a way-out-of-your-comfort-zone steak recipe. First of all: the steak tastes rather sweet because of the soy sauce marinade. Steak and soy sauce are a great match for each other.
It’s salty and sweet at the same time, a flavor combination that I like a lot.
The horseradish and whipped cream on the other hand take care of the surprising explosion of freshness in your mouth. Also try to envision this in combination with the zestiness of the lemon juice. The balance between these flavors is just perfect. It’s not easy to explain. You should really try it out at home yourself and be the judge.
Horseradish Sauce Recipe for Steak
How did I come up with this steak recipe?
I once watched a popular cooking show, quite some time ago. And one of the contestants there made a similar dish.
Soy sauce, cream and horseradish. It sounded just so right to me. I believe that he used pork belly instead of steak. It definitely wasn’t steak. So that’s my twist on it, steak in soy sauce with horseradish cream sauce.
To crank up the spices a little more you can add red chili and spring onion to the soy marinade or replace the lemon by tamarind juice for example. Serve the steak and this horseradish sauce with a bowl of golden fries or baked potatoes.

- 2 steaks
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- ⅓ cup soy sauce (80 ml)
- 1 shallot sliced
- 1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
- sunflower oil
- ½ cup cream (120 g)
- 1 tbsp horseradish paste
- Combine the soy sauce, the lemon juice and 2 tbsp sunflower oil. Then pour this over the steaks and let them marinate for an hour. Turn the steaks a few times during this process.
- Whip the cream and the horseradish into a fluffy topping. Chill it in the fridge until later.
- Heat some sunflower oil in a non-stick pan. Stir fry the sliced shallots for 2 minutes and transfer them to a plate. Then take the steaks out of the marinade and brown them in the hot pan on all sides until cooked the way you prefer. Season with a little pepper.
- Turn off the heat. Add the remaining marinade to the steaks in the pan and stir. Then transfer them onto hot plates. Drizzle lightly with the soy sauce marinade. Add the cooked shallots. Garnish with the horseradish cream. Finish with some freshly chopped parsley.
